uhm, my italian mind would never pronounce dynajite like that, but maybe 
native speakers of other languages think differently, I don't know. To 
mitigate this, we could simply drop the 'e' at the end: 'dynajit', but I agree 
that it's much more boring.

About other names, the most obvious and boring alternative is rpyc (for 
rpython compiler), but I don't like it too much.
